What are the pros and cons of keyless entry systems?
To think about a keyless entry system at home or at work does indeed feel like a step into the future. Not long ago home security at its height was a security camera, large and bulky, mounted at the door. These days, home security has been made sleek and streamlined. Cameras, electronic peepholes, imperceptible motion sensors and scanners or digital pads for keyless entry has become a daily occurrence.
But before you opt for a digi lock or a facial recognition lock or perhaps an eye or hand scanning lock. There are a few things that are worth considering. After all there are also many benefits to the good old key systems. Not to forget when thinking about the pros and cons of a keyless entry system is the reliability and originality of a key. The lock security that exists today is very fine and anti pick locks and five lever mortice locks prove hard challenges to bypass even for experienced burglars.
Keyless systems come also with newness. Which is something that our skilled and trained locksmith technicians are apprehensive about. There are many factors about keyless systems, like smart home systems, code lock system or fingerprint access systems which simply have not been in play for long enough for us to know what the down sides are. Some systems provide battery backup in case of a power out, but by no means is this a standard feature. Some systems even fail in providing locksafe fallback. Meaning that some doors will simply unlock if there is a power out.
The same argument can of course be seen from a security point of perspective. And if there is a fire, there may be electronic problems which keep the door locked. A nightmare scenario may occur.
